Chicken Ramen Soup with Basil and Lime
Chicken Ramen Soup with Basil and Lime is a magical food. In this ramen recipe, Vietnamese Pho meets classic chicken soup. The soup is light and nourishing, filled with healthy veggies cooked to tender-crisp with juicy chicken. I added gluten-free ramen noodles keeping the soup gluten-free.
♥ Nourishing chicken ramen soup for comfort.
This nourishing soup is the kind of clean, uncomplicated chicken soup you long for when you need comfort and nutrition. In this ramen recipe, I used veggies such as Nappa cabbage, mushrooms, carrots, bell peppers, onions and garlic. For the flavour, I used basil, turmeric, fish sauce, toasted sesame oil and chicken. For some spice, I added hot chilli pepper. This soup relies on basil and fresh lime juice to tie everything together beautifully. You can vary the vegetables depending on what you have on hand. However, the veggies have to be thinly sliced so that they cook very quickly. At home, there is a lot of leeways to experiment and extend this recipe to your liking.
Have you ever used a wok when cooking stir-frys?
Using a wok is relatively easy. Make sure it is well heated – best done over a medium flame heat for one or two minutes. Then turn the heat up and add the oil, quickly followed by the ingredients you are cooking. In this recipe I used a wok, it is not necessary, but I love using it, the wok makes everything easier. Most homes don’t have a wok, so using a soup pot works just as well.
When making stir-fries, using a wok is an incredibly quick way to cook, and the short time means all the ingredients retain most of their flavour, nutrients and texture. The idea when using a wok is to toss the ingredients continually. Whenever you are making stir-fries, preparation is key to cooking the food. The reason I am mentioning the stir-fry cooking method is that this gluten-free chicken ramen soup starts with stir-frying the veggies.
